Title:ISSUANCE OF FINAL HWIR-MEDIA RULE
RCRA Online Number:14076
Date:04/07/1997
To:Steinberg and Green
From:Hansen and Fields
Organization of Recipient:Morgan, Lewis and Bockius, and Piper and Marbury
Description: EPA has reached agreement with Edison Electric Institute to amend their consent decree regarding Hazardous Waste Identification Rules (HWIR). The deadline for promulgation of HWIR-waste is now April 30, 2001 (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 63382; 11/19/99). The agreement also commits EPA to issue a final rule for HWIR-Media by June 30, 1998 (HWIR-Media finalized 63 FR 65873; 11/30/98). EPA’s policy of treating violations of land disposal storage restrictions (Section 3004(j)) with reduced, federal, enforcement priority for small volumes of mixed waste, is effective through April 1998. Prior to expiration of this policy EPA will determine whether an extension is warranted. The policy does not apply to any mixed waste for which treatment is currently available, or becomes available during the term of the policy (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 63464; 11/19/99).
